    This link just got spammed on Malwarebytes Forums.

    Hey Aura,
    Thanks for letting us know, I'll see what can be done to bring down this domain. This is not the first time this is happening, there are a lot of rogue domains using our name: Here is just 1 example - MalwareTips.com - Beware of Enigma SpyHunter Scam "malwaretips (dot) org" .Basically just trying to trick people into installing questionable software. Most aggressive of all are .net and .org.
    We are talking with a lawyer to see what can done about these domains. Again, Thanks!
